Skeptoid is not that skeptical as much as it is contrarian

Some of the episodes are good, some are overflowing with thinly-veiled libertarian propaganda. Sometimes this guy seems to want to be contrary for the sake of being contrary and he often goes off-topic, like on the show about organic food... he rambles on and on about leftist stereotypes which has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the main reason people eat organic is because of the way the food is grown, not how big the corporations are that sell organic products, not whether or not they're unionized. Next time you do a show on straw men, be sure to use half this show as an example of one.

Not a very good example of skepticism, I'd suggest SGU instead.

I've been listening carefully to quite few episodes now and I have to say I'm not hearing skepticism and critical thinking so much as just a gratuitous oppositional viewpoint. I gave it one star because of the lack of objectivity, which I think is absolutely essential in the world of critical thinking or skepticism. I would recommend The Skeptics Guide to the Universe as a much better example of a skeptical podcast.

The Rush Limbaugh of Science Podcasts!

When I listened to the earlier episodes of this podcast, I was immediately in love. Then, the more recent episodes took a bitter turn. Mr. Dunning becomes increasingly hostile toward "liberal elites" , religious peoples, and anyone who does not subscribe to his neo-conservative ideology. Like so many out there on the net, he starts with the very best intentions, but as he becomes established, falls into the role of an idelogue more concerned about being right than providing any real "food for thought." A major disappointment!
